  7. I'm feeling bored and worried....I didn't have any guidelines whatever when I got my boot for my fracture. They didn't tell me I needed crutches or offer them. They didn't tell me anything at all. They just gave it to me. I read that I needed crutches or a walking stick online and my mother went to get one for me because she knew where they stashed them at the hospital and she knows everyone there. My injury was left for a week and I'm worried that it wasn't immobilised enough to heal properly. Also, I don't know if I've used the boot properly. I'm just guessing. I've had no reassurance, no confirmation that I'm doing the right thing. It's all guesswork. I was too shocked and nervous to ask much when I was at the clinic..but crucially, I wasn't told anything. Obviously, because I had the clot, my focus has been on that for a couple of days and I haven't tried to contact the clinic about my broken foot....it's the weekend now. I guess I could try and call out of hours and see if they have any information. Thing is, I'm more worried about my broken foot than my blood clot believe it or not....walking is so important to me. I'm feeling pretty down about it all when speaking to them to know how things should progress would have put my mind at rest from the start. I wasn't pushing for information about my foot whereas I pushed to be seen about my clot and I got much better treatment in that case. I'm not knocking our health service, I am grateful but it is true that unless you push for it, it doesn't really happen for you

  11. Man, if showering before my foot fiasco was like climbing Everest, now it's like launching myself to the moon Anyway, least I got it done. Next is clothes washing. Hope I can manage narc mom's interference better this time.. Also gonna do some yoga and experiment a little bit with my foot, see what I can do with it now even though I have no freaking idea if I should or not. Maybe just a tiny bit of wiggling and stuff

  12. Been trending towards a full blown depression but thank goodness I seem to be bouncing back now. One bad thing about depression is that if you have had it once, it is always in the back of your mind that you can fall into the pit again, especially if you were hospitalized.

  23. I don't want to put a room full of people through that. It's hard. No I don't want to die alone but I could never put people through that either. I can't imagine telling people you have to sit and watch me die. Right?

  24. You're not doing anything wrong. I suppose the best case scenario would be for the foot to not move at all until it heals which is impossible. A bone that has to move on a regular basis every day in pretty much every person's life is impossible to get exactly right. You can only do your best and it almost comes down to luck but at the same time most people heal pretty well. I know it's awful living there. Just keep it together. You're almost out of there. I had to deal with him today as well. They're so absurd in the way they act it's unbelievable. It's like it must be a cartoon character or something. How is this a real person? Once you're out of there though you will get to say I'm not going to be back for a while every time like I did today.

  26. I didn't do anything when I had my break. Someone else I know did everything they were told. The end result. We're both very active people. We both do plenty of walking and we both hurt every time a cold front comes in in the area of the break. So I think you're doing fine. The stress over constantly worrying about everything is what's doing us the most harm right now I think.

  27. I sort of watched watched a movie. It’s difficult to focus these days. Then I went for a short walk. Today was not a great day for me health wise. My sinuses were blocked all day. Any walking is better then no walk. I have to keep moving daily

  28. I know how you feel. Every single week feels like a week that should have killed me. I've given it everything I have up to this point. I'm honestly not even sure what the end goal is or why I'm still doing any of it to be honest. I think it changes you when a lot of people you love die. You begin to look at all of them in your mind like they were larger than life and something inside of me always wants to make them proud.

  29. Yeah, they're looking after me, making sure it doesn't get any worse. People complain about our health service but they always do right by me. In spite of the fact that they are overworked and underpaid. They're saints

  32. I don't know but surely they would put you on blood thinners or something to try to prevent it from happening again right?

  34. Good morning Nightjar Happy Friday Everyone On Thursday I met my friend Ken for coffee. He is very paranoid about getting covid so he sat far away from me. It was somewhat uncomfortable. Afterwards I went to Lowe's and Home Depot and walked inside to get some exercise.

  35. There is something wrong, you suffer from a nasty disease called depression. Its just as real as heart disease, cancer or a broken bone.Depression makes us feel as we do. We do not accept it as the illness it is, until of course it does nearly xill us or make you bed bound. you are here because you know there are like minded people feeling the same feelings. Sharing is caring and learningto manage how we feel. You can feel pathetic, I do, but i know its my disease. I cant right now get happy or confident but Im sure it will come. I hope you can believe in a brighter future too

  41. Are you financially dependent on her? Just a guess, but it could be her excuse to be a nasty narc to you If instead you're the one with salary/income, if she tries to narc you could shut her up with 'I earn more than you'

  42. That’s the problem, I don’t see it as depression, when people tell me this, my head will just say, yes I know all this n yet I still feel this way. It’s ok I don’t need the hug. I’m an idiot anw. Sorry my fault again for not seeing it as depression. No one can help me if I can’t help myself. But thanks for trying.

  45. Yes, I have little experience with narcissists, though maybe I know one or two. I've learned that they take any sort of criticism very badly and personally, but always expect praise, even if subtle or implicit. Maybe they're not "evil" narcissists in that they can be gotten along with if I adopt the right approach. Anyhow, I wonder what percentage of people pass away "surrounded by family and friends," as is the news cliche, vs. the lone scenario and undiscovered for years...

  46. Yep, same here... almost seems as though fun and excitement have been eliminated from this world. They certainly used to have a presence long ago.

  47. It's hard to deal with. Their only real emotions are anger and frustration because their only concern is how things affect them. A plane could come crashing down on the highway in front of them on their way to work and their only thought would be anger because the plane made them late to work.

  48. Having a nightmare day with narc mom...... criticising me, raising her voice at me all day long. I haven't done anything to her. And I'm stuck....I have no escape. Not a leg to stand on Tired too. She's just avin a go and avin a go.....I'm not well and this is what I get. I think I'd rather be disabled on my own time.
